it? >> let's talk about the numbers, john. mitt romney still getting post debate bounce. you can't say any more that debates don't matter. the new cnn poll, poll of polls, mitt romney has a slight lead with likely voters, 48% to 47%. his performance certainly showed that you can't say it doesn't matter anymore. there is no bigger swing state than ohio, where you are. >> reporter: the history tells you no republican has ever been elected president without winning the state of ohio. can you do the math and have romney win without this state? yes. is it likely? no. before the debate some polls had him down as many as nine points in ohio. new cnn poll row leased last night has him down four, 51-47. another group, american research group show ed romney up a point in ohio. no question. just like in the national polls, a bit of a boost. romney is up in the suburbs, up among independents. there's signs of strength here from romney, we can tell you there are a few soft spots he needs to work on. >> john king in ohio, covering the debates as well. thank you very much. watch live coverage o
with ryan tonight and how that's going to go after the last presidential debate. want to talk about that. mitt romney's big win in last week's debate, of course, receiving now about, we understand, in the polls how long it's going to last, we really don't know. that question, of course, could be answered tonight. we're talking about this one and only vice presidential debate from our senior political analyst and national editorial director and, ron, you and i were at those vice presidential debates. last go round back in 2008 when a record 70 million people watch that night. there was so much excitement, and i think there was a lot of curiosity, how sarah palin was going to go up against joe biden and a lot that came out of that debate. what do we make of the expectations tonight between biden and now ryan? >> well, first of all, i would be surprised if the audience was as big as it was in 2008 when sarah palin was a political and cultural phenomenon. the romney-obama debate received an enormous audience, even bigger than we expected. i was at the last debate in danville, the vice presid
't bring his a-game. so it is a little bit surprising that this poll shows obama slightly ahead of romney. >> yeah, at least it makes the contest more interesting and not predictable. so let's talk about tuesday's debate format. our candy crowley, she is going to be great, make that raddatz, we knew was going to be great. how is this going to be different? >> well, it is a town hall format, different than just the usual area, the candidates are speaking directly to the voters themselves. they're having to gauge or maybe you know, modify their answers based on the reaction, right? it is a lot tougher, it presents a lot more opportunities for mistakes. you remember, don, in 1992, president george h.w. bush looking down at his watch in a town hall format debate. it presents a little bit more opportunities to mess up. because the audience right there, you have to react to, as well as the audience at home. so it is a little bit harder to connect. >> yeah, but guess what? who do you remember? the people who are relatable, and not perfect. >> that is true, that is true. >> thank you shannon. >>
? >> reporter: that's right. you're talking about david axelrod and david gibbs. they were on the sunday shows, and they were really going after mitt romney. yes, they admitted the president was disappointed in his performance during the debate, but also going after what mitt romney said during the debate coming right out and saying that he was dishonest. take a listen. >> i'm not going to take away from mitt's masterful thee at trickle performance. he did a superb acting job. you know, he did everything but learn tap dance. >> i think he was dishonest, absolutely, when he said he never proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts. that was dishonest. he said on the broadcast to 70 million americans, i will repeal obama care but i will still be able to cover people with pre-existing conditions and ten minutes after the debate he sent someone into the press room to say he really didn't mean that. >> reporter: now, ed gillespie, one of mitt romney's top advisers, suggested that the obama campaign was a sore loser. he suggested that they were acting like 7-year-olds who had lost a checkers game and had clear
a really good point because there hasn't been much talk of some of the social issues over the last couple of weeks. when you look at what's happening in the battleground states, the romney/ryan ticket, which is pretty far extreme on a number of these issues, women's reproductive health, access to contraception, discrimination on things like definitions of rape, women really are responding to that. and it's a big reas why the obama/biden ticket is so far ahead in so many battleground states with women. and i thought that last night's debate, you know, you had a clip -- it's kind of the untalked about thing this morning -- raised a bunch of issues for the campaigns to be talking about over the next couple of weeks. yes, the economy is important. wh women have to worry about their health care and the economy, that's just an extra burden. and i think it came out well last night. >> i think people were paying particularly close attention, erick because of mitt romney's comments to the des moines register, and there are other reasons. it's a very timely issue, erick. even though it was about th
